Be Merry and Bright by Jeannette Douglas. This charming sampler is on 32 ct. almost all stitched in Wool. It gives the piece a nice Christmas cozy feel.

Capture the warmth and peace of Christmas as you stitch this festive design. A glorious Christmas tree forms the centerpiece, flanked with poinsettias and stockings.

Many “specialty” stitches are used – there are diagrams and written instructions for all of them, making this design approachable – if you have patience, your initial skill level with specialty stitches will not be important.
